Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Wexford v Bray Wanderers are shown on this page - as well as up-to-date odds.
Wexford will be hoping for a better result after the 8-0 First Division loss in their previous game against UCD.
Matches featuring Wexford have tended to be entertaining encounters recently with plenty of scoring being the norm. Over their past six clashes, a total of 29 goals have flown in for both sides combined (at an average of 4.83 goals per game) with 4 of these being chalked up by The Warriors.
Their past results show that Wexford:
- have left without a victory over Bray Wanderers in their last 3 matches in the league.
- haven’t won at home in the past 12 league games. Something needs to change.
Bray Wanderers come into this encounter following on from a 3-1 First Division win with the downing of Athlone in their previous game.
The trend of at least one team drawing a blank in games involving Bray Wanderers has become evident recently. A glance at their last six meetings shows that it has happened 5 times. In those clashes, opposing sides have managed a goal tally of 3 while The Seagulls have scored 9. That kind of pattern might not follow through here, however.
Going into this encounter, Bray Wanderers are without a win away from home in their last 2 league games.
Head to head
A review of their prior head-to-head clashes dating back to 04/03/2019 tells us that Wexford have won 1 of these & Bray Wanderers 5, with the number of drawn games standing at 0.

Team News: Wexford
Wexford boss Brian O'Sullivan does not have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash owing to a completely injury-free squad available for selection.
We think that The Warriors could line up in a 3-4-2-1 formation for this game with Ben Foster, Ben Wilmot, Christian Kabasele, Craig Dawson, Pervis Estupiñán, Tom Cleverley, Nathaniel Chalobah, Jeremy Ngakia, Domingos Quina, Tom Dele-Bashiru and Glenn Murray.
Team News: Bray Wanderers
Due to a fully injury-free group ready to go, Bray Wanderers manager Gary Cronin has zero fitness concerns to report ahead of this clash.
We’re of the thinking that The Seagulls might play in a 3-5-2 lineup, going with Dejan Stojanovic, Anfernee Dijksteel, Grant Hall, Dael Fry, Djed Spence, Jonathan Howson, Lewis Wing, Marcus Tavernier, Marvin Johnson, Ashley Michael Fletcher and Britt Assombalonga.
In our opinion, Wexford have the firepower to put one past this Bray Wanderers side, although just one goal possibly won’t quite be good enough.
Our selection here is for a narrow 1-2 winning margin for Bray Wanderers at the end of the 90 minutes. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
